I'm looking for another app than Mail on my iPad. I have searched the appStore without success.

Is there not other emailers on iPad ?

What exactly are you looking for in this Mail alternative? – Loïc Wolff Aug 26 '11 at 7:52
It's in fact I don't want to merge my emails and the one of my wife in the same App. I will use the other one, leaving Mail for her. It's an idea to get along with the fact that there is no "session" on the iPad. – Rabskatran Aug 26 '11 at 8:24

A solution would be to use Gmail web app and add it to the dashboard.

The iPad web interface is pretty nice, I believe it works offline, too. One of the main problem is that there's no new mail notification.

If you are using Gmail then have a look at:

  1. Inbox2
  2. Mailing Desk

Inbox2 even lets you integrate your conversations from other webapps (twitter, facebook, linkdin), if that is something relevant for you.

The Inbox2 URL says it is for Windows, and the Mailing Desk link is giving a 404 error. – Clare Macrae Feb 17 '13 at 23:10
